Dear FlexisafSupport,
Please come on here and intimate us with the reason for the prolonged delay of the scholarships list and WHEN we are to know our fate. Otherwise we will conclude that the problem is as a result of incompetence of flexisaf. And we will mobilize to condemn Flexisaf for such gross incompetence. I mean, Ptdf has been in the business of awarding scholarships for many years, and it has never been this bad. We will use the instruments of social media:Twitter, Facebook etc to condemn Flexisaf to the point that no company will ever have interest in hiring Flexisaf in any selection process. Gush!

The role FlexiSAF plays is quite misunderstood. FlexiSAF provides infrastructure to help register candidates for the Scholarship, provide a platform for shortlisting applicants for the Exam and also a platform for taking the exam.
After the exam is concluded, we submit the result to the PTDF which at that point, our job for the Scholarship is kind of done. At this point, all these tasks I have mentioned have been handled by FlexiSAF and have submitted the results.
It would rather be unfair to PTDF and FlexiSAF if you would simply not even place a call to the support line to understand what is happening but rather seem to want to resort to threats to have our way. This is UnNigerian. 07069414970 is the number to call.
PTDF is quite aware of the time applicants have before the admission deadline is closed. No organization would go through all the stress just to give up on releasing the list. Even if you want to use the social media to air our grievances, let us do it in such ways that the PTDF is moved to make the decisions they need to make faster but not through threats.
Thanks very much for your understanding

Hello All,
We are all indeed on the edge waiting for the shortlisted successful applicants to be contacted. The PTDF is well aware of the timeline applicants have before admission is closed. We assure you that the PTDF is trying its best to make sure the list is out as soon as possible.

Kindly exercise a little more patience and we believe the best would come out for us all. Wishing us all the very best

Yes. That is true. We were simply implying that we could get you some of the documents you uploaded on our system but having issues to access elsewhere at this point

Nah. Of course very few persons are called. It actually means they were considering him deserving but got some missing info they needed to confirm. Majority of the final shortlist would have their documentation in place and won't need to be verified.

I only mentioned it to give u guys hope that ptdf is already working on realeasing final shortlists

Hello,
Kindlly note that we have started that the calls we made were no indication of shortlisting. We simply needed to update some information and thus made the call.
Please take note

Y should one bring 10 copies of research proposals. Y insinuating that we should bring our MSc thesis and employment letter just yesterday evening when our interview will b 4 days time.

This is unfair.

flexisafsupport. if one does not bring all documents, will one b disqualified.

Dear Sir,
These documents I believe were uploaded. If you have any issues accessing them. We could send them to you. But we are indeed sorry for the late announcement.

Hello flexisafsupport,

Please is there any updated information from ptdf on the results of MSc exams? Is the list coming out same time with phd list?
some us who would be fortunate to get the scholarship will need to apply for Academic Training Approval Scheme (ATAS) certificate, which takes about 20 days to process. Afterwards, we would need to apply for Confirmation of Acceptance (CAS), which may take two weeks. It's after these that we can think of processing Visa. However, some of us have start dates in first Week of September.
Please do as much as you can to help. We appreciate your support.
Kind regards,

Hello,
We do not have any updated info from the PTDF at this point but we hope to have something before the end of next week. We would keep you posted

Sincerely,

Hello,
Kindly be informed that the calls that were made to some applicants were in no way a signal for shortlisting. We had some issues confirming some information which is why we had to make the calls.

We are simply trying to clear the air such that people who have not received similar phone calls would not feel like they have been rejected

Sincerely,

I was wondering how would they be able to interview 1008 people in 5 days and grade them in this short period of time because the result must come out in August. This means everyday not less than 200 people will be interviewed. For Msc is understandable since its CBT the result of successful candidates could be ready in 1-2 days. Just wondering guys.

Dear Applicant,
Kindly check your email for new emails. More board members are been added to make the program go smooth

Any hint as to when the Msc results will be released? Time is very limited as most schools resume in September. There's a whole lot to process.

I spoke with the high ranking officer at the PTDF today concerning when the list would be released. She informed me that the PTDF only releases the list of successful candidates and not like a list for everyone to see their names.

But the list of successful candidates would be available as soon as possible

Hello All,
The management of the PTDF regrets to inform its prospective Ph.D. applicants this year that other means of conducting the interview apart from a physical interview would not be possible this year. The management, however, is looking at how to incorporate other means in its interview process next year

Hi Flexisafsupport,

I hope you'll get to see this! Thanks for reaching out to us on this platform. This is excellent customer service.

Not all of us have gotten emails with specific dates for interview. I, for example, sent you an email requesting for a particular date.
Is this possible? This is important, especially for those who may be coming into the country. Like someone said, the prices of tickets are extremely expensive!

Thanks.

Greetings...

It looks as if you are a major stake holder in Flexisaf and you are scared the business would come crumbling because of so many outburst here on nairaland.. if I may ask how true is your source for point number one? did you even take time out to play this scenerio out in your head. if I must share my view which I most certainly will, From the look of things it wasn't PTDF that set those questions...

Point Number 1....considering the amount of time taken before a date was fixed, it was most certain that even PTDF wasn't sure if the scholarship would hold or not, but in the event that it did and everything was rushed, I think PTDF wouldn't have just set a batch of questions for everybody, considering they have been setting different questions yearly, where no two candidates answered the same questions, it is obvious they would have a bank of questions that repetition would hardly ever occurred between candidates let alone batches. besides PTDF would not send incomplete questions with no images to flexisaf without flexisaf spoting it since they claim to be technical...so my dear its their fault end of story.

Point Number 2......Yes some very inept people took it upon their selves to spread the gospel of English questions and other questions mostly around, however Flexisaf wasn't grounded well enough in the rules and regulations they set for the test...Kindly refer to your invite mail....truth be told I was concerned when we were asked to come with writing materials to a CBT but just assumed there were courses that needed calculations. Also Flexisaf didn't do anything about the telephones that were allowed into the hall, Plus the generation of pins after shortlisting candidates, at the exam center is appalling...... that is their fault end of story.

Point number 3..........that has been sorted out..Refer to One

Stop soliciting for peace on behalf of flexisaf, Oga they are not entirely free of blames.

DISCLAIMER...THE ABOVE POINTS ARE BASED ON HEARSAY, DON'T GO AND HUG TRANSFORMER BECAUSE YOU WANT TO PROVE ME WRONG.

Hello,
Some of us remember calling FlexiSAF asking about questions for the exams, we do not set the Questions. We simply get the questions from the consultants PTDF got. We only have the questions to upload.

Concerning trying to be blame free, we are not saying the exam was completely flawless, we sure know that some candidates tried sabotaging the exam, but what we want us all to do is to be objective about the criticisms.

Definitely, we welcome criticisms as they would help us better prepare for other exams.

Thanks for your understanding

It is a standard procedure to collect all papers from from the candidates before they leave the exam hall. In my opinion you guys didnt do anything to prevent or even reduce the leaking of exam questions.

Dear Kunbee,
FlexiSAF Sends at least 2 of its staffs to each center to coordinate the technical issues of the venue. Other members involved in screening and other activities are mostly members of the PTDF. We would definitely ensure that the result of the exam is as transparent as humanly possible.

Thanks for your honest observation

Episteme2:

Well said. The only issue I have is if the questions were really leaked before the exam. As per other issues, it's not flexisaf's fault that some thoughtless fellows gave later batches heads up with the vocabs and other stuffs after writing theirs. Also, I don't think giving different questions to the various batches would have solved the problem because a batch could still argue that their own questions were more difficult thereby putting question mark on level playing ground for everyone.
It's true that Flexisaf were not watchful enough to ensure nobody entered the exam hall with phone and left with anything written or copied on their rough worksheets.
All the same, what we all need now is prayer. Don't worry about people who force nature to give them what it doesn't have for them.

Thanks very much for your thoughtful understanding. We at this point should know that no matter how much vigilance and security was put in place, some of us would still try to sabotage this exam. We assure you that we would do our possible best to make this exam a success.

We advise us all to pray as the Hard Work of everyone of us would never go in vain
